Released 21st March, 2015
- Added Logs generated by the Passbook app are now captured in a LogStatements table.
- Added The last twenty-four hours of log statements can be displayed in the management portal
Sorry, but it's not possible to upgrade to this version from previous versions
Due to a mistake I made in the automatic migrations of the database, it's not possible to update automatically to this version. You will have to install this version by itself and allow it to create a new, empty database.
You can then copy all the existing data from your current database into this new database. As the table structures are the same, it should be possible to select and insert using SQL.
It was simply not possible to correct this issue using code as an automatic EF migration has been inserted by all versions prior to this one. This makes it impossible to apply any new migrations successfully. This was a massive mistake on my part and I can only apologise.
Released 11th February, 2015
- Added PassVerse has been updated to Entity Framework 6.1.2. This should improve performance.
- Fixed The detection of duplicate
serial_number values has been update to handle concurrent requests.
Unfortunately, the Entity Framework upgrade has caused a problem with this release
There appears to be an automatic migration being added by EF without my knowledge. This is causing some customers to have a problem upgrading to 1.4.9. Therefore, I have pulled this version
and will rectify the migrations in version 1.5. Please get in touch if you have any questions.
Released 12th January, 2015

- Removed Remove direct Azure Cloud support. PassVerse can still be deploy to Azure, but must be done on a VM.
This is another very minor release. The Azure support has been removed as it did not prove popular.
Released 6th February, 2014
- Added Cloud configuration is now supported, so PassVerse can be hosted within Windows Azure Cloud services.
- Fixed Fixed bug where deleted passes were considered active during an update.
- Fixed Fixed issue where a template update generated a "pass type identifier cannot be changed" error.
Azure SDK 2.2 is currently required for standalone installation
As PassVerse can now be deployed to Windows Azure, the standalone version is a missing a file reference, which means you must also include the Azure SDK 2.2 on your server.
This is an unfortunate mistake and it will be rectified in version 1.4.2.
This is a very minor release and whilst it doesn't bring any new features directly, it does enable PassVerse to be hosted within the Windows Azure as a Cloud service. Whilst the Azure Deployment cannot be used in production due to SSL restrictions,
the next release will solve this. It is due by the 14th of February.
Released 6th January, 2014

Happy New Year! This release of PassVerse includes new Webhook functionality requested by a client. The error reporting of the API has been improved to help make it easier to identify issues with requests.
Validation of the requests has also been improved, but there is more work to be done here.
Released 17th December, 2013
- Improved Added version 0.9.3 of dotnet-passbook.

It has been a while since the release of 1.3, but I'd like to assure you that PassVerse is still under active development. We have been helping some clients
